The work deals with the stereotype of a heart-shaped structure. It is made of bamboo, with craft-like techniques and suggests curved and bent surfaces, open and closed forms – which make the work to look like a vessel or a shelter. The work itself is a gesture. It is an act of concealment and an attempt of introspection. "In my practice I try to create abstract spatial situations, objects which relate to their position and placement in the architectural space. To explore issues of performativity and behaviour, through the development of a gestural language that implies possible narrations and reflections of thought", Plumi says.

Tula Plumi was born in 1980 in Crete and currently is based in Berlin. She has studied in Athens School of Fine Arts. Recent shows include: Overturned at Art Geneve 2020, Weavings at Museum Benaki 2019 Athens, Bed Manners at Kunstpunkt, Berlin 2019; Jelato for all, Jelato gallery, Mallorca 2019, A Museum - A History of 100 Years - Museum of Modern Greek Culture, Athens 2018. Her work has been shown at Musee national d’art modern Centre Pompidou, Emst National Museum of Contemporary Art Athens, Daimler Contemporary Berlin, Kunsthalle Athena, Athens Biennale
